I was going to argue my point further until the last couple of posts convinced me that ya'll are the type of people who hit on 20 in blackjack.

Either one of them.

I see the Bulls one having a much higher chance of happening. But either one of them would be amazing for our team. Gerald Wallce would be a perfect fit with Kobe, but Hinrich would be an excellent fit in the triangle. I'm not a massive Felton fan, but still, he'd be good.


thats what i'm saying wallace gives us 2 arizas but wallace being more offensively talented

felton wouldn't have to start right away and could just lead an up tempo second unit till he rounds into triangle shape

i like the chicago trade also but i can find more reasons for the bobcats to deal their two guys than i can for chicago to do so

Good point. Wallace is an amazingly good defensive SF, with offensive talent. Either trade would be great.

as i said earlier i wouldn't trade odom yet

i've said from day 1 give him the kwame approach

if by the end of december hes playing great basketball great for us keep him and we have great chemistry

if by the end of december hes costing us games and playing passive basketball trade him quickly to preserve value and get time to form chemistry with new pieces

i personally like no love the way we are playing right now but once we find out if lamar fits in his new role or not its time to make the decision does he stay or go

I think any trade with the Lakers require that we trade ASAP. I don't recall anybody we obtained in the second half of the season (which is very few anyways) has contributed or received any minutes in the playoffs.

I agree. So far, I say keep him. If our play dips and the team looks broken, then you try to make a change. At that point, Odom becomes are biggest (and one of our only) tradeable pieces.

As far as him "costing us games," I'd like to quote a wise sage:

"Lamar Odom would like everyone to remember they are winning without his help, so when they lose it can't logically be his fault."

sadly that quote is exactly how lamar thinks and plays

if i dont take this shot i cant miss it

if i dont drive right noone can see i can't use my right hand

if i dont play consistently noone will notice when i disappear

i mean that quote defines lamar

The Knicks were winning games without Marbury. If they added him to that lineup (pre-trade), they'd be losing them. That quote doesn't tell much.
